. and that's the memo. now for the top story tonight, reaction. joining us from cambridge, massachusetts, hard university law professor charles ogetry who is a friend to the president. where am i going wrong here, professor? >> well, bill, where should i start? first of all, i love oprah winfrey she has done a great job and i think in her heart if you heard all of her statement, i'm sure all of it will be put on the fox network, she is talking about how things are much better than they were. she was incensed about whand to president obama with comments about race. she didn't say anything that the president said. in fact, he is one who has teflon when it comes to issues of attacking him. he has been attacked by people from start to finish. i think the reality is that he is a good man, he doesn't let race bother him. people say he ♪ race enough. he is too much race. he ignores that and tries to do what's best for the country. you think about it some of these criticisms have not just been about obamacare and people are very critical of that but the reality has been about everything. about

. they criteria the example of massachusetts wherein the first month of what was a year-long enrollment period, just 123 people signed up, which was just .3% of the entire number. perhaps more significantly right now, one of the bigger concerns for this white house is the scramble to try to fix the website, to try to improve the total number of individuals that sign up. the number by the cbo, the suggestion was that they wanted to have about 7 million people signed up over the course of the six-moen rollment period. but jeffrey zients acknowledged it was not really clear whether they would be all set by the end of the month, saying we are not where we need to be. we're not where we want to be, to use his exact language. >> and yet the president has given himself, as it were, that deadline of the end of this month, isn't he? >> yeah, that's exactly right. this has been something very important to the president over the weekend. white house aides confirmed to me, there was an unsparing dressing down of senior advisers by this president. two weeks after the enrollment, he said if he had known abo
